by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ahead by more, by five points. then at 10:00 eastern time, polls will be closed in all of those states and we'll be closing polls in the 10:00 eastern time in that hour in the states that you see blinking right here. these four states. of those four states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states
a recession. if mr. obama gets reelected and tre's a stalemate because he wins an electoral majority, electoral college majority and not electoral majority and stalemate with the republican house, we could see the stalemate cause the mother of all recessions, a recession we don't recover from and that we call in economics depression. melissa: you sa it would take two% away from gdp if tax cuts expire. we heard gdp is growing at 2%. that would take us to zero. a bunch of economists got together and say if you couple that with sequestration thing that would be 3.6 to 5.2% decline in gdp. that would be deep into negative territory, right? >> absolutely. and you must remember that if you're at 2% growth and get down to like a half, it is really not sustainable. melissa: no. >> because it is like a man riding on a bicycle. it is so slow he falls off. we're growing as slow as we can get away with without tumbling down. melissa: that 2% today that was better thaexpected is actually horrible because we continued at this rate, it would take usike, seven, eight, nine, years to add back jobs to
did last time. >> from the get-go, mr. obama promised so many things that i didn't believe he could do it. and he has proven that he couldn't do it. >> reporter: robert stevens is an independent and a obama 2008 supporter. >> it was something different for the country, something that hadn't happened before, with a black president. so i got caught up in that a little bit. but i think he's a disappointment. >> you don't like what you got but you're not sold on the alternative? >> absolutely not. at this point i don't know who i'm going to vote for. >> reporter: tense final days. in a place long known for historic battle fields. >> so close like almost all the battleground what happens in the end what happens on the ground. both parties say they've got a much better ground operation than 2008. the republicans say they've knocked on more than a million doors and they say their early voting numbers are improved. the democrats say no way. they will win virginia again because of this 60 plus offices statewide, latino strags up 19%. and under 60% under the age of 30. the democrats hope will pu
is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global warming who does not exist -- here's an issue. there was a geologist on cnn in explained that a cold front came in from the northwest, right through chicago. one day last week we were sitting at 80 degrees. the next we were sitting at 40 degrees. we went from 80 to 40. that cold front was directly down to the gulf of m
, independent caller. hello.: i have one thing to say. our country is divided since mr. obama has been there. to me it seems is as divided to this country to such a point that people are at each throats. someone to pull us together. i think mitt romney will do a little bit better together and pulling people together because he has done it in his own state. we would hope that after this is all said and done a new efforts to not spending money we do not have. i cannot do it. you cannot do it. i do not think there is a list around there that can. we have to get people up there realize that it is not their money. it is our money. host: let's look at some comments that have come in on facebook. he set at only voting for democrats because the gop has lost touch with objective reality. they rant about the national debt and less tax cuts are involved then the national debt and deficits think no difference whatsoever. a delight to read the rest or any of the other comments are faced the pages c-span. beatrice joins us from maryland. hello. caller: i was just listening to the statements of some of the
-election. take a look, right now, nationally, mr. obama has an 11-point advantage over mitt romney among women voters. that lead is even larger in some battleground states like ohio, where a recent cnn poll indicates the president has a 14-point edge over romney with women. and in virginia, where obama leads by 16 points. so what is behind those numbers? joining me now, gloria steinem, also the co-founder of "ms." magazine. good morning and thank you for joining us. >> good morning, and thank you. >> let me show you about the cover that we just showed there. describe the war on women as you see it today. >> the war on women is not actually a republican war, it's a war by the extremists who are now in control of the republican party. and what it means is first controlling reproduction. we're accustomed in this country to talking about production. we forget that controlling reproduction is even more important. so it would put women's bodies under literally government control with the human life amendment. it's also about refusing to support equal pay, which is quite astounding, because i don't r
'dt know exactly how move it forward, but it is interesting to contemplate. >> mr. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. are you still planning the lawsuits? >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. the answer is yes. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonest
for their rights within our own republic. mr. obama has transferred his views to the palestinian struggle. he has done this on several occasions. noting that the palestinians fight for their rights. i find that obama's reading of history, the painful memory of burning cities. it was also at the heart of the african-american struggle for their rights. i grew up in this era. and i think that we will remember if we delve into our memories of the president in 1968, lyndon johnson, could not employ the 82nd airborne in vietnam. though he wanted to. because it was in detroit. palestinians are not fighting for their rights. they have their rights. they are inalienable. even to them, as it says in the declaration of independence. they are inalienable by god. it is an entirely different kind of a struggle than a struggle for rights. the struggle for freedom includes a different kind of tactic. especially when those engaged by lunch counter citizens or bust boycotts. so let's be blunt about this trouble. violence is a fact of history. it is certainly not lost on the palestinians of the west bank. there is

. we cannot let them get a nuclear weapon. >> mrs. vilsack, president obama has approved the use of unmanned drones to fight terrorists around the world -- that concerns some members of your party. are you concerned about that? >> not particularly. i think it is part of a strategy i am talking about -- there are a lot of different things that we need to be able to do. there are people who will be able to decide when it is the best time to use drones or any of the other tools we have to be strategic and nimble and our response. so i do not have any particular problem. >> mr. king, libertarians in your party have a view of drones that is not terribly positive. what is your view? >> i think the utilization of them to take that leadership of al qaeda has been an effective means in that part of the world. it is a case by case basis. i would not say i would remove the authority from the president to protect us. he needs to have that authority as commander in chief. i am not critical of those. >> a kind of war -- a trade war possibly is spoken of as hypothetical with china, with currenc

, that it is something that god intended to happen. you know, mr. donnelly's comments on obama care, happening there, reforming it, it's good to reform it, but it shouldn't be here in the first place. you know, the fact that we have the catholic church and so many institutions filing lawsuits to get their basic freedom that i thought was guaranteed under the constitution, the practice of your religion, that now there has to be an amendment put forward to bring that about. if the law was never passed, the lawsuit wouldn't be in place, and religious freedom, today, would not be in question. >> moderator: continuing with rebuttals, mr. horning, 30 seconds. horning: there's a lot of misunderstanding, and there's no real winning the issue. unfortunately, it's one of those that, you know, it's an outcome of something terrible happening sometimes, and it's dealing with life situation nobody wants. we can't do justice to it. as a federal legislature, i can't do justice to it. i would fail in what i would try to achieve. >> moderator: thank you. mr. donnelly? donnelly: my faith guided me on the issue, and i

to mr. koh, if you will. hochul: chris, i joined mitt romney, president obama, kirsten gillibrand come when the long and many others in full disclosure because i put transparency is important. full disclosure of personal tax return by putting them online so people know where money comes and. you have made my personal finances part of this campaign, fine. i'm open and transparent. but you've said that you don't think the voters could understand him is too complex for them to learn your 25 pages tax return. so why'd you think you should be held to a lower standard than others just because you'll think the voters can understand your taxes? what are you trying to hide? collins: ms. hochul, under federal election law there's nothing that calls for personal financial disclosure which both of us felt that the issues both you and your husband are sector millions. i fully filled out those forms in full compliance. and i went a step further but i three years of my tax returns. it was published that take 30% of my income in taxes. i have no loopholes. i've no for an account. it's my small busines

to mr. kaine. >> with the recent attack of our consulate in libya, and the admission from our administration that this was an act of terrorism, as the obama administration, in your opinion, overstated the degree to which it has slowed or dismantled al qaeda? >> i think al qaeda remains a very serious concern in different parts of the world. we went to afghanistan to wipe out bin laden and al qaeda. i am happy we have done it. virginia troops are not being deployed so repeatedly now that we are out of iraq and we have been laudable -- bin laden and al qaeda. we need to take the fight to al qaeda where ever they are, yemen, africa, we have to continue to go after al qaeda until all the leadership is gone. the incident in libya was a very troubling one. we need to get to the bottom of it. to find out everything that happened and everything we can find. i have been asked about foreign debates. when something like this happens, it reminds me of how we work together in the aftermath of that horrible tragedy to get answers and make improvements. you find what happened, you find every
